    Amid a wave of sometimes violent jewellery store hold-ups, there are now 1.6 million "likes" on a Facebook page in support of a 67-year old Riviera jeweller who has been charged with murder after shooting one of his assailants in the back. The French are fed up with crime and the far-right is riding the wave of indignation against attackers who are increasingly younger and more violent. Francois Picard and his panel discuss crime and cyberactivism.
